About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

I enjoyed the Open Office Day very much. It is a very useful way to have an insight into PwC, what they do and how they work.


2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

I felt valued, was listened to, had questions answered and it was a nice atmosphere.


3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

Full support and guidance. Any questions I had were answered.


4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

I have graduated already so it won't aid my degree studies. However, the information we received was incredibly useful as the graduate recruitment process was clearly explained and we were given examples of the kind of assessments that would be used in the process.


The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

The structure of the Open Office Day was great. The day was clearly planned out and we knew what it was going to consist of at the very start.


6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

There were a number of last minute cancellations (it was a grey, rainy Monday morning!) so there were 10 of us in total in the end. But that was fine. Atmosphere was friendly and relaxed.


7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

This was a one day event with the aim of giving participants an insight into the graduate recruitment process at PwC. With that in mind, personal training and development was based around this. The practice assessment leaflet and group exercise we took part in during the event was very useful and will definitely help with development etc.


8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

We had 3 recent recruits take part in the day to give us an insight into what they do within the company and what their background was. We were able to ask them about their careers and the departments they worked in which was useful. It was also great to be at the actual PwC buildings to see what was happening and how people were interacting.


9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?

It was useful in this regard as we were able to speak with the recent recruits who were telling us about their experiences. The company culture came across very positively.


10. How valuable was the content of the day in helping you to decide on your future career path?

Very useful. It has got me thinking a lot and was an incredibly informative day. I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking of applying to the PwC graduate recruitment scheme. It really is a must.


Other Information

11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?

There wasn't really anything to be reimbursed for so this question is not really applicable. We were well looked after and PwC even provided lunch and drinks for us which was very thoughtful.

12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?

Yes. As mentioned before, 3 of the more recent recruits joined us during the first half of the day and this was great. They gave a valuable insight into the company and what it is like to work there.


13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?

As this was an event that lasted for just a day this question is not really that relevant I guess, but we were able to meet with the 3 employees that took part in the first half of the day and also the other participants of the open day.


14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?

We were more focused around the graduate recruitment process rather that activities outside of work, but some social activities were mentioned.


15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?

Absolutely yes! It really is an incredibly useful day if you are thinking of or want to apply for PwC's graduate recruitment scheme. Even if you are currently going through the recruitment process and have applied already it will be incredibly useful for you as you will find out about what to expect at the next stage. Do it!
